DJ and Matayo Uiagalelei both starred for the St. John Bosco (California) football team as high schoolers.

Now in college, the senior quarterback DJ and freshman defensive lineman Matayo are key players for the Oregon State Beavers and Oregon Ducks, respectively.

The talented brothers faced off on the gridiron Friday night when No. 6 Oregon hosted No. 16 Oregon State in the final week of college football's regular season.

Oregon came out on top, 31-7, and Matayo came with away with one sack recorded against his older brother.

After the game, the brothers and former St. John Bosco standouts met near midfield for a hug and quick prayer before going their separate ways. 

Matayo and Oregon will take on No. 4 Washington next week for the Pac-12 championship in Las Vegas.

DJ and Oregon State (8-4) must wait until next Sunday to see who they will face off with in a postseason bowl game.
